Journal of Clinical Ethics Special Issue Focuses on Intersex

The current number of the Journal of Clinical Ethics (v.9 no.4 Winter
98) is a special issue devoted to the ethics

of medical management of intersexuality.

From the introductions:

The articles in this issue of JCE ask how intersexuals should be medically
treated, based on what we know now. They urge, above all else, that surgeons
no longer operate on infants born with ambiguous genitals to create "more
normal looking" genitals.

Edmund G. Howe, Editor in Chief

Without a doubt, the speed with which the intersex scene has been changing
during this decade seems to indicate a major paradigm shift.  . .
. In the end, all intersexuals are now asking is to be treated according
to the same ethical principles as everybody else. This volume seeks to
explore what that would mean.
